Love Maps: Exploring Polyamory Part Two


Dr. Eli Sheff dives into the subjects of social criticism of sexual behaviors, designer relationships, the generational paradigm shift around monogamy and non-monogamy, and how polyamorous people are able to connect with their community.

In this two-part episode of the AIB Network's Love Maps series, Licensed Professional Counselor and Love Maps Therapist Elaine Wilco and I sat down to discuss polyamory. In Part One, I covered the basics of polyamory. Here in Part Two, I dive into the subjects of social criticism of sexual behaviors, designer relationships and how women are now participating in multiple-partner dynamics, the generational paradigm shift around monogamy and non-monogamy, and how polyamorous people are able to connect with their community.
